A 25-year-old man was shot dead on Friday after he tried to hijack a car
in Marlboro, northern Johannesburg, Gauteng police said.

Spokesperson Inspector Moses Maphakela said three men attempted to
hijack a car at the corners of Lilium and Gazania streets at 6.30pm, but
the driver fought back, shooting one of them dead.

An unlicensed firearm was found in the dead man's possession.

The other two would-be robbers fled in another car believed to have been
hijacked during the day on Friday.

The motorist was not arrested and not charged because he was acting in
self-defence, said police. His firearm was licensed. - Sapa
